Summary

Summary

Losing a loved one is perhaps the most painful, overwhelming experience in life. The experience can result in a stunning range of emotional and spiritual states: from sadness to anger and from faith to despair. The roller-coaster of emotions can leave one feeling so vulnerable and exhausted that grief is compounded by a desire to isolate oneself. But without help, the emotions can become overwhelming and paralyzing.This little book is a type of personal grief companion -- a guide for facing and understanding feelings and for thinking through new ways to cope with life in the aftermath of loss. The 31 short, easy-to-read chapters compassionately address some of the most pressing questions and issues facing someone who has recently experienced a deep loss, Each chapter contains a brief reflection on an issue of loss, followed by carefully selected Scripture readings and a suggested prayer. This guide provides gentle help for those looking to put back together the pieces of a life shattered by loss.
